At 38, Derek Jeter’s career should be entering its encore stage.
But don’t tell that to the future Hall of Famer, who is hitting .324 with 13 home runs and 43 RBIs, and went 6-for-14 with a home run in every game of the three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field.
Whenever the Yankees legend does decide to hang up his spikes, he could just take his fame and fortune and enjoy life on a beach somewhere, or he could pursue a future career that keeps him in the game.
The latter option doesn’t appear to be on his baseball bucket list, however.
When asked if he has considered managing when his playing days come to an end, he didn’t hesitate with an answer:
“No chance. No chance. Nada. Zero. No, not a chance.”
Jeter’s lack of desire to call the shots from the dugout doesn’t mean he can’t do the job. On the contrary, White Sox manager Robin Ventura believes Jeter could excel in that position.
“I don’t know. I’m sure he’s probably saying no right now but you never know,” Ventura said. “He’s smart enough to. He’s smarter than I am so he should be able to. You don’t know if its going to happen but he’s had a pretty good run as a player.”
Makes sense…why manage when you could own?
